Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed CWM Chemical Services, LLC (CWM) RMU-1 Final Cover Geosynthetic Clay Liner will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves revising the design for the Residual Management Unit - One (RMU-1) Landfill final cover system for the currently permitted 47 acre RMU-1 Landfill. The proposed final cover design revises the existing permitted design by replacing two feet of Compacted Clay Liner (CCL) with a Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL) atop a six inch soil grading layer and reducing the thickness of the vegetative layer above the GCL from 36 to 24 inches. The 40 mil (0.04 inches) thick textured High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Liner, the geocomposite drainage layer and the 6 inch vegetative cover components will remain unchanged in the final cover design. Due to the 30 inch reduction in the overall thickness of the final cover, the top of waste grades would be increased while maintaining the same permitted top of vegetative cover grades. Based upon utilizing the revised final cover system for all remaining phases of capping, an estimated increase of 106,870 cubic yards of gross air space capacity for waste disposal would be realized compared to the currently permitted volume. The project is located at the CWM Model City Facility along Balmer Road, 1.9 miles east of the intersection of Balmer Road and Creek Road (NYS Route 18) in the Towns of Porter and Lewiston, New York. The RMU-1 Landfill is located within CWM's 630 acre Model City Facility at 1550 Balmer Road in the Town of Porter, New York.
